Over at "Stacy Makes Sense," she posted a recipe for Crockpot Macaroni and Cheese. You can see her post HERE. I am taking NO credit for this, but I made it today and I HAVE to share it with you! Actually, Stacy writes that she got the recipe from Kayla.
I followed her recipe and adapted for what I had on hand. Oh. My. Goodness! This stuff is the BEST mac and cheese I have EVER eaten and it was very easy!
Crockpot Macaroni and Cheese
1/2 pound uncooked macaroni pasta
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I used my homemade cheese)
3 cups whole milk (I used our goat milk)
3/4 teaspoon sea salt (I used Realsalt)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl. Whisk thoroughly.
Add the milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder and mustard and whisk again.
Stir in the macaroni and 2.5 cups of shredded cheese (reserve the extra 1/2 cup.)
Pour it all into a Crockpot (the one I used is 2.5 quarts, but I'm sure you could use a larger one if you like.)
Sprinkle the reserved shredded cheese over the top. Put on the lid and set on "low."
The recipe said to let it cook for 5 hours. Mine was done in 3 hours and 40 minutes, so do be looking in there without lifting the lid to see what you think. I could tell it was probably done by how it looked and how it smelled, so I checked it. Delicious! Tender! Creamy! You will love this.
Here is what I ate, with some of yesterday's leftover baked beans, for lunch. :D
I had to control myself, it was so good!
